    A Painted House by John Grisham

    Hello gang!
    I'll get it going by giving those of you who don't have the book yet a synopsis -
    September 1952. The cotton is almost ready in the fields of Arkansas. The harvest will soon begin. Luke Chandler is a seven eyar old boy who libes with his family in a small, unpainted house on rented land. In the next six weeks, the Chandlers and a hired band of hill people and Mexicans must bring in the cotton that is their livelihood and the guarantee of their survival on the land. Soon heat, rain, fatigue, a killing and the unravelling of a family secret threaten to destroy the Chandler's hopes and will transport Luke abruptly from childhood innocence to experience.

    Dear Sham and gang, I must be dumb or somethin'.
    Bought the book last weekend from MPH, started reading...tried...and tried....still tried yesterday night..but giving up already!!! Not my cup of tea; especially if it's about life at a cotton field in the South!!! If it's life in exciting Manhattan, perhaps still can swallow... ...anyone wants the book? FOC? Please pm me. I can deliver it to your doorstep.

    Sham, I think i'd appreciate the Mandolin better..will let you know how it goes later..Thanks!

    Hi, maybe you would like to try reading these books...It's light reading and very, very funny. "Dancing in a distance place" by Isla Dewar. , "No wonder I take a drink" by Laura Marney (This one is really laugh out loud funny!!) or "The dog walker" by Leslie schnur or how about "Good grief" by Lolly Winston
